18:00 - 20:00
Donald Trump and Commodus? Emperor Tiberius and the 2008 financial crisis? Two worlds, 2000 years apart that are not as different as you think. In his book, George shines a light on the side of Rome that they do not teach you in textbooks, exploring it from a business perspective to better understand the people, the empire, and its successes, failures and ultimate demise. By looking back at Rome, we can learn valuable lessons to take into the future.
George holds a PhD in the economy of the Roman Empire from King’s College London. He is a fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and was Director and Trustee of the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies. He was a Partner at Tillinghast-Towers Perrin and continues to practice consultancy.
George recently carried out an IEA Book Club Short on our Youtube Channel, discussing his book with Dr Steve Davis (IEA Head of Education). To view this, click the link here.
